    The east anchor span of the old Tappan Zee Bridge is demolished by explosives and falls into the Hudson River in front of the new Mario Cuomo Bridge in Tarrytown, New York, US, 15 January 2019.

    A demolition is the controlled elimination of a building or structure by disassembly and collapse. It is considered an exceptional measure, and is associated with city planning and other circumstances. The demolition of buildings has a clearly-defined strategic focus.

    The demolition and dismantling of construction sites seems simple at first glance. In fact, it is a rather complex feat of engineering; problems arise on a case-by-case basis and depend on the specifics of the object which needs dismantled.

    Have a look at the spectacular demolition of bridges and buildings.
